About the Rotary Club of Ashford
A quick overview of the Club
Our club was chartered in 1966 and we meet at The Ash Tree Public House, Convent Road, Ashford on Mondays at 6 for 6.30 p.m.
Meetings consist of a dinner followed by a speaker or Club business. Meetings and dinner usually end by 8.30pm to allow socialising in the bar if so wished.
We welcome people interested in joining us and enjoying fun and fellowship whilst fundraising for worthwhile causes.
We have under 20 members (male and female), both retired and working. As one of the smaller clubs in our Rotary District we are proud of our record of service to the community and we enjoy the teamwork required to achieve our goals.
We raise money to help organisations and individuals in the Ashford and Stanwell area as well as for projects in the Third World and for disaster relief at home and abroad. As part of the 'Rotary International' organisation we also support worldwide projects funded by the Rotary Foundation, which is the organisation's international charity. Perhaps the most significant of these is Polio Plus which is a joint programme with the World Health Organisation to eradicate Polio from the world.
We have interesting speakers on diverse topics, we have social evenings, outings, partners' evenings, theatre visits etc.
You can become as involved as you wish. As a member weekly attendance is encouraged but not obligatory.
You will find a warm welcome from the Club so come along and dine with us without commitment.
All we need to know is that you are coming, so please contact us a few days before you would like to visit us.
